Risk Implications of Cleared Vs Non-Cleared Derivatives

Re-cap
11 Mar 2014

This seminar explored and highlighted that while clearing mostly alleviates counter-party credit risk, it also creates significant funding costs and may even lead to a liquidity crisis by requiring initial and variation margins. Evaluating margin costs will become very important and also a challenging problem in risk management of cleared as well as non-cleared derivatives.
